Toyota Avalon Makes Debut in Detroit

Also standard is the Toyota Safety Sense P suite, incorporating Pre Collision System (PCS) with Pedestrian Detection, all-speed Dynamic Radar Cruise Control (DRCC), Lane Departure Alert (LDA) with Steering Assist, Automatic High Beam (AHB) and a Blind Spot Monitor (BSM) with Rear Cross Traffic Alert (RCTA).

Toyota unveiled the fifth-generation 2019 Avalon sedan in Detroit and the Japanese carmaker claims it has raised the bar in the mid-premium sedan niche.

Talking about the interior of the new Avalon, there is the leather stitching which looks incredible and the gorgeous center stack which floats above the dash and cascades down into the center console. Other brands such as Ford have also started offering support for Amazon Alexa as built-in vehicle features. One of the most expected additions to the new model is Apple's CarPlay platform which is a first for a Toyota vehicle. A similar setup in the new Camry Hybrid earns 47 mpg combined, but figures for the new Toyota Avalon Hybrid are still to be determined.

The company confirmed in a comment to MacRumors that CarPlay will show up in additional 2019 cars from Toyota and Lexus that run the company's Entune 3.0 (for Toyota) and Enform 2.0 (for Lexus) infotainment platforms as well.

But Toyota appears to be a holdout no more.

"Avalon will also feature Toyota's first integration of smartwatch or Amazon Alexa-enabled device connectivity, as part of Toyota Remote Connect", the automaker says. The XLE and Limited trims feature a front fascia (absolutely) dominated by horizontal lines, while the XSE and Touring trims have a different front fascia, (absolutely) dominated by a black plastic honeycomb pattern.

Joining the 1200 watt speakers are a new 9.0-inch infotainment system with five USB ports for connectivity, 10-inch heads-up display for the driver and 7.0-inch digital instrument cluster.

With a 113-inch wheelbase and a 196-inch overall length, the new Avalon is about four inches longer than the Camry and less than an inch longer than its predecessor.

All Avalon models will continue to be front-wheel drive.

Keeping up with its sporty intentions is a sports mode as well as Toyota's first implementation of Adaptive Variable Suspension for better ride and handling. Stay tuned for pricing and further information closer to its launch.
